You Belong to Me, Tribute to Mom and Dad

Post by Omegaman » Wed Nov 01, 2017 7:07 am

A song that meant a lot to my late mother and father, a short video I put together in preparation for her recent funeral. This was a back up in case I couldn't play at church, but I was able to tell the story of her, dad and this song and play it. My nephew played acoustic guitar with me, so I didn't use the backing track. My brother in law shot video, but I have not seen it yet.

That was a lovely song and this brings back so many memories of my childhood. I'm sure your Mom & Dad would be proud of your rendition. Great video too.

Nice tribute, Bill. You have my condolences. Was your mother a Philly girl? I see rowhouses in the background in that one photo. Nice playing.

Sean, she was from Scranton, PA, but those row homes were in NE Philly, when she summered with her Aunt and Uncle... good eye!!

Thanks for the condolences, the past two years were rough on her (and us) in and out of hospitals and rehab/nursing facilities, but she died at home slipping away rather peacefully and quickly.

Bill,
Sorry to hear of your mom's passing. It's a beautiful tribute. I really like the idea of covering their favorite song over the images.
